Social media has an array of content. Every now and then we pick out our best tweets to share with you. Twitter has become the modern day newspaper and it is a fantastic way to stay up to date with the latest developments in the cycling world. Standing out from the crowd, remember to have fun on your bicycle and La Vuelta are a few of the topics that caught our attention over the weekend.
Cycling fans sure know how to support their favourite teams. The pink of EF Education First – Drapac p/b Cannondale means that their supporters are easily identifiable and certainly stand out in the crowd. They sure stood out at this years Colorado Classic.

A legend ‘retired’ pro cyclist, Phil Gaimon, always provides quality entertainment. Reminding us to keep smiling while we ride our bicycles!
I prefer the term “un-professional” to “amateur,” but it was great to ride with these legends @CoClassicPro TT before the #CookieCorner action heated up. @usacycling @RideCannondale. Fun weekend coming up in Golden and Denver. pic.twitter.com/wq2vcUJV8G

Team Sky may not be sending Geraint Thomas or Chris Froome to the La Vuelta this year, but the battle for GC honours will definitely still be an exciting one. An undercover contender who we could potentially see at the sharp end of the GC leaderboard is Machal Kwiatkowski.
A week since @Tour_de_Pologne victory. Busy week😅 I’m still in Châtel, preparing for @lavuelta & WC. I've never raced two GTs in a year before so I'm ready for that new experience. No pressure, just another important step for me and the best road to @ibk_tirol2018 👍 @TeamSky pic.twitter.com/0Oi2YhvLoL

A sprinting master class awaits! With a number of the world’s best sprinters heading to the La Vuelta this year.
The team worked hard at the Cyclassics in Hamburg but the unfortunate crash of @Ackes171 in the finale completely changed our plans. I'm recovering day by day and now it's time to focus on @lavuelta! https://t.co/rRjVO4Ssbx

Jan Ullrich has been going through a difficult time lately and a few cycling icons have taken to social media to show their support. Lance Armstrong has been on of the most vocal and supportive, Cycling Tips covered a story on why Ullrich means so much to Lance.
Today, Lance Armstrong posted a photo of himself in Germany with former Tour de France rival Jan Ullrich, who is struggling with legal and substance issues. Last week, Armstrong explained to us why Ullrich’s situation matters so much to him. https://t.co/ML6lAsRmEG pic.twitter.com/n7vJL7QmFY
